The European Union should become an autonomous entity on the world stage. It should absolutely develop the capabilities to defend its self and its interest if required.
The modern world, wether we like it or not, is still a battleground of competing ideas. Theocracies, Political Islam, Communism, Authoritarianism & Totalitarianism are competing for influence in the world, all of which are fundamentally at odds with our core values.
The European mind in the 17th/ 18th century generated the enlightenment, which was the encapsulation of the fundamental values of prosperity & progress.
Similarly, the modern European mind through (so much) trial and (so much) error managed generate our Union. Our values & ideas can become a beacon to humanity, to history, once again.
It’s our duty.
